GDT Paradise of Stamps

Happy first of the month!! Can you believe its February already!! WOW!!!

So today I am with you with a GDT card for Paradise of Stamps and of course its the month of all things love related so of course we have a 'Love' themed challenge for you. So get your romantic side out and hop across and see what the rest of the gang have been up to

For this card I wanted to do something different- I decided to flip the Robin Hood romance theme and made Tilda Robin Hood- on in this case Roberta Hood aka Tilda! And to add to that I wanted a romantic enchanted forest to boot. Yup I know lol!

So I used 'Be my valentine' Tilda from one of the older collections. And she is ready to shoot her arrow and get her man!! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The dies are a mix of Go Kreate and Magnolia. I used papers from First Edition Paper collection 'Rose Garden' but also plain old mint green and pink cardstock to cut the leaves for the branches as I wanted it to be Tilda in a clearing kinda effect.

The flowers are cut from a Magnolia die and I got the resin flowers at Stampin' Up. Around the image I used stickles on the wings of Tilda and the little hearts dotted around her. I also stamped aple pink hearts with Distress Ink 'Spun Sugar'.

Now for the embellies my fave part! I used some Shabby seam binding from Live and Love Crafts. The love paperclip and the charm bow and arrow are also from there, as is the cute pale pink sparkly button on the bottom.

In the middle of the die cut flowers,I used some pink peal stamen for the middle.

The sparkle chandelier bling is from Magnolia. Around the image I dotted flat back hearts, as instead of flowers on these trees, in Tilda's enchanted forest hearts  replace them!

Finally, on the inside I stamped a arrow and 3 hearts.
